Rainbow Rabbits wool felt blanket

Rainbow Rabbits blanket 1

crochet edgingUsing the same techniques as the Rainbow Rabbits wall hanging, I created and stitched wool felt rabbits onto a 36″ square block of Mary Flanagan’s felted wool.  I followed this tutorial to crochet an edge around the blanket with Koigu KPM yarn(color 0000). I considered backing the quilt with flannel, but I love the feel of the felted wool and I wanted the blanket to drape and fold without a lot of bulk.  Although designed as a blanket, this would be very cute hanging on the wall of a nursery, too.  I’d like to try variations of this project with different animal silhouettes, or different color schemes, or on white flannel as a base fabric.  Endless possibilities!
